Kylian Mbappe was involved in a heated altercation with an opposing player on Friday night as PSG continued their challenging start to the new Ligue 1 campaign.
Despite Kylian Mbappe scoring an impressive brace, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) lost 3-2 to Nice at the Parc des Princes.
Nice took the lead in the 20th minute when Terem Moffi’s deflected strike found the back of the net, beating Gianluigi Donnarumma, PSG’s goalkeeper.
PSG quickly equalized eight minutes later, with Mbappe unleashing a powerful shot that left Nice goalkeeper Marcin Bulka with no chance.
In the second half, Nice regained the lead when Moffi brilliantly set up Gaetan Laborde for a goal.
There was then a heated moment when Moffi capped a superb individual performance with his second goal, rolling the ball past Donnarumma from the edge of the area.
Moffi whipped off his shirt after scoring before celebrating in front of the PSG supporters, to the annoyance of Mbappe.
The France international was seen berating the Nice attacker ahead of the restart, clearly agitated by his celebrations. Check out the video below.

Kylian Mbappe managed to pull one back for PSG with a stunning acrobatic effort just three minutes from time, but it wasn’t enough as Nice held on to secure all three points.
Mbappe’s reaction to Terem Moffi’s celebration has caused some social media users to brand him a “sore loser.”
PSG’s defeat adds pressure to new manager Luis Enrique, who took over in July.
The club is currently in third place in Ligue 1, behind Monaco and Nice, having won only two of their first five league games in the new season.
